The Baltimore Ravens will be looking for a new starting center once again this offseason as they saw Bradley Bozeman depart to join the Carolina Panthers this past week.

Not only that, but Bozeman’s dirt-cheap one-year, $3 million contract has many questioning why the Ravens didn’t re-sign him in the first place.

Perhaps the Ravens just simply moved on after extension talks soured back in December. Whatever the case, they now need a new center. This isn’t unfamiliar territory for the organization, though.

Over the last 10 years, the Ravens have had a total of five different Week 1 starting centers. 2022 will mark their sixth different Week 1 center of the last decade.

For a team like the Ravens that thrives on continuity, that’s not ideal.

The Ravens clearly have a plan for the position or else they wouldn’t have just let Bozeman walk for essentially nothing. What is that plan, however? Well, they have a few options.

They could look internally, turn to free agency, or explore options in the draft. Let’s take a look at four potential replacements for Bradley Bozeman this offseason.
